Ben actually posted these pictures!

Elora loves her horse! She also enjoys scaring us by rocking back and forth as far as she can.

Annika is a Sunbeam!

OK, Nate found our old camera and went crazy. We now have an abundance of very strange pictures. Our favorite is this one with Liesel wearing a bathrobe and pointing a wooden gun. Note the flowers stuck in the robe for good measure. Maybe we should stop letting our children watch James Bond movies....

For Christmas, Grandma and Grandpa Jensen took us all to Disneyworld!
We went to the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. This is a somewhat disorganized compilation of pictures from both.

Elora was so excited she could hardly stand it!

Annika was happy as can be!

Nathaniel showing off his new pirate hat, Aunt Crystal soaked from Splash Mountain,
and Liesel being a little silly for the camera

Uncle T. Jay helping Elora (It was great to have so much help from Aunts and Uncles!)

Liesel being silly again

Grandma with Elora in a teacup

Our four kids plus a friend they had just made while waiting for the show to start

Nathaniel somewhat reluctantly agreed to this photo.

Liesel fell and hurt her chin. As you can see, Grandpa is applying some "medicinal aid"

The kids all loved It's a Small World.

Aunt Collette was 7 months pregnant and dealing with swelling and still managed to spoil the kids as usual.

Emmerson, our cousin, and Annika riding in a rented stroller. This later became the napping house with kids sleeping on top of the shade and on the inside.

Uncle Ryan, Aunt Shaunna with Emmerson, and Uncle Wayne

Liesel doing what she likes best... no... not acting like a monkey....just being plain silly

When is Pluto going to learn how to talk so they'll give him clothes to wear too?

Annika being cute, Crystal being a great Aunt, and Liesel being silly

And Nathaniel being scared!
Just kidding around above and truly too scared to ride Splash Mountain below
(But to his credit, he did go on everything else except one scary Dinosaur ride at Animal Kingdom)

Elora pointing at the fish and making a fish sound with her mouth to any stranger who would pay attention to her

It was a magical, wonderful vacation! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa!
